Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition: ratings information

extreme weight loss - ABC TV show cancelled or renewed?ABC’s new sitcom, How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life), had a painfully long title and has already been cancelled. Did the poor ratings have anything to do with the long title? As one who has had to write this awkward title more than a few times, I kinda secretly hope so.

Perhaps ABC has learned their lesson? The network has announced that they’re shortening the name of Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition to simply Extreme Weight Loss.

Whatever you want to call it, the third season of the reality series starts on Tuesday, May 28th. The network has 13 episodes this time, the show’s largest installment order to date.

Extreme Weight Loss

This reality TV series documents the makeovers of "super obese" people, those who are approximately 200 pounds overweight. While other shows extend weight-loss makeovers over the course of a season, this one condenses a year of the person's life into one episode. To start, trainer and transformation specialist Chris Powell moves into a person's home to help them safely change their nutritional habits, establish an exercise routine, uncover some of the psychological reasons for their weight gain, and determine why it's so important for them personally to lose the weight. They set a goal together and Powell makes sure that they meet it. When Powell leaves, he's set them on the right course. He gives the participant a tough three month goal to meet and promises a big reward if they meet it. He keeps apprised of their progress via regular video updates. It's not uncommon for the participant to encounter tough challenges that can derail their efforts. Sometimes they meet the goal and get the prize and sometimes not. In the case of the latter, Powell does what he can to get them back on track. At the end of one year, the participant's transformation is unveiled at a big party with friends and family members. It culminates with the person stepping on a scale and a celebration of how much weight they've actually lost, underlining what a difference a year can make.
